When we are praying to be delivered from something, know that Satan will tempt us with that very thing we want to be delivered from.
When we fast, or go on a diet, your temptation will be food. Everything looks and smells great, but know that it is satan.
Whatever it is we’re praying to be delivered from, Satan can and will tempt us, and make us think it’s from God. He knows how to tempt us with what we like, and make us think that is what we want.
Jesus was tempted just like we are. Therefore, know that God will not allow you to be tempted above what you are able to handle, but will make a way for you to get out of the temptation.
Hebrews 4:15 (KJV) – for we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feelings of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.
I Corinthians 10:13 (KJV) – there hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
